On Nov. 3, I participated in an 18-hour overnight night public relations “hackathon.” The event ran from 6 p.m. on Friday to noon on Saturday and was hosted by PRLab, which bills itself as the nation’s longest-running student-organized public relations agency in America.

As an obnoxious Harry Potter fan, I planned on joining BU’s quidditch team since the moment I committed to BU. I had hoped to meet a group of fellow Harry Potter enthusiasts and bond about our common passion. Instead, I was met with a high-energy and fast-paced sport with which I couldn’t keep up. At […]

Since starting college, I have been getting to know someone more intimately than I ever have before. We were first introduced at orientation and instantly clicked. Now after months of sharing snacks, details of our lives and various jokes, I think it’s time to take our relationship to the next level. I’m ready to fart […]

This weekend I took a big step in becoming a true Boston University student: I went to my first hockey game. As a Miami native, hockey was a foreign concept to me, much like snowfall — donning L.L. Bean boots and wearing more than two layers at a time. I had never actually seen a […]
